Maybe it's just a compliment towards X, but I think the competition only makes both of them better as they are both elite at their positions.

After Saturday’s training camp session, wide receiver Tyreek Hill was asked if he’s getting antsy to compete against other players, and in his answer, he paid a high compliment to Miami’s top cornerback.https://dolphinswire.usatoday.com/2022/ ... ning-camp/
“Yeah, man. I’m really sick of going against ‘X’ (Xavien Howard), man,” Hill said. “He’s been locking me up in practice. I’m really eager to go against somebody else. Somebody that I’ve played twice. I really can’t wait to get to Tampa and I know the guys are very eager to get down there as well to play. Everybody is excited.”
Hill and Howard have had their battles at practice, and obviously, both players have walked out with their own victories. It’s that constant competition between a top cornerback and a top wideout that sharpens even the best players’ skills.
Here's a video of Hill getting the best of X on this pass from Bridgewater.
